Hands On: TwelveSouth Forté for Apple Watch

11/23, 9:57am

Gorgeous chrome charging stand

Back in the olden days, when you retired from a company after working in the same room for 40 years, they would present you with a watch. It was always ornate, expensive, luxurious, and a tacit reminder that since you're never coming back to the company, your need to know the time is somewhat reduced. Apart from the implicit sarcasm of the gift, the tradition could continue now with the TwelveSouth Forté instead of a watch. For this is luxurious, and something you could present to someone with a big flourish, a slap on the back, and a speech.

You're going to assume that this stand is powered, and that you do not need to insert the Apple charging cable that you got with your Watch. Unfortunately, you do.
